Happy New Year ... and some words of thanks

When we count our many blessings, it isn't hard to see, that life's most valued treasures are the treasures that are free.

For it isn't what we own or buy that signifies our wealth.

It's the special gifts that have no price: our family, friends and health.

O God, when I have food, help me to remember the hungry;

when I have work, help me to remember the jobless;

when I have a home, help me to remember those who have no home at all;

when I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer, and remembering, help me to destroy my complacency;

bestir my compassion, and be concerned enough to help;

by word and deed, those who cry out for what we take for granted.
